Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will launch 26 schools of excellence and 15 model schools in Tamil Nadu along with his counterpart, M K Stalin, on September 5.

Tamil Nadu Education Minister Anbil Mahesh met Kejriwal on Tuesday at his residence and invited him to the launch of the DMK government’s Puthumai Penn Thittam (innovative project for girls) and the inauguration of 26 schools of excellence and 15 model schools across the state.

The AAP supremo got the invitation days after he took a jibe at Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma over which state’s education system was better.

“I thank Thiru @mkstalin for inviting me to visit Tamil Nadu next week. I am elated to join the people of Tamil Nadu in their journey towards an education revolution. We will together be launching 3 crucial projects on September 5,” tweeted Kejriwal.
